(living that #momlife in our Snap Longsleeve)
I founded Poppyseed when I was 7 months pregnant. Some may call this crazy, and it may very well be, but it was honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made. I am passionate about creating clothing that can solve problems, because in a world where everything is "smart" I think that our clothing should be too. I also love tea, a lot. I’m married to my best friend and we have a bright-eyed one year old who has the cutest dimples this side of anything. I am a believer. I grew up on both the beaches of Central California and the countryside of the Midwest. I am a Military spouse. I call the gritty city of Tacoma, Washington home, and find inspiration in its hard working history. I am a hustler and am here to shake things up. Also, Han shot first.
It started with one dress.
My sister had a request. She wanted a kick-ass dress she could wear before, during and after pregnancy. So I engineered a dress that could change shape using two bilateral zippers sewn into inverted pleats. English? She could change the shape of the dress as she needed it. Interest in this product grew and soon people were asking where they could buy one. After graduation and a few years of contracted work the moment came to launch my own brand. Poppyseed was born with the desire to produce quality garments that could change their shape as the wearer needed them, while still be fashion forward. We launched a Kickstarter campaign in January 2016 to fund the production of our core design The Zipper Dress. Throughout the rest of the year we added new, innovative pieces that solved problems. In 2017 I applied, and competed in The Bellevue Collection's Independent Designer Runway Show. We showed our Spring/Summer 18 Collection "Break The Surface" at Fashion Week and won the grand prize. Our winning collection is currently available for pre-order and will be produced right here in the Greater Seattle Area.
At Poppyseed we are committed to producing garments that can be worn through multiple stages of life. If you are pregnant, or not, postpartum or simply craving clothing that does more, we offer something that will fit. Because clothing should fit, regardless.
